I fear that I may be heading for diabetic burnout. I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in March during chemotherapy. Initially I was put on insulin and Diamicron. I came off the drugs and started a very low carb diet in May. It went well and I had to keep to about 20-30 grams of carb per day to keep under my target of 8.5. Then more recently I discovered the effects of vigorous exercise. I was able to drive my glucose level down by 2-4 millimolar through exercise. For a month all went well. My average glucose was 6.9 and I was in target between 90% and 95% of the time. But because of the effectiveness of exercise (3 times per day) I started to indulge in foods I should not be eating such as muesli, bread, biscuits and small amounts of dark chocolates. I just burn off the glucose before it rises. However my willpower to stay on low carb is decreasing s and I’m eating more of the wrong foods. I find the whole diabetic experience stressful and depressing.
